Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: yesterday

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Just finished watching the three-part television series "Your Inner Fish."  I highly recommend it.  Lots of fascinating evolutionary history concerning humans is presented.  

I streamed it on Netflix.  I know it is available from other sources as well.  

Your Inner Fish

Bertold, I haven't had spaghetti in SO long...years!  I'm drooling.  Now, THAT is the kind of communion I'd appreciate.  (Are the incantations in Italian, or are there none?)

Raaaaaaa-mennnnnn!

Patricia, I agree! Newer US bills do have a little color, but we're way behind other civilized nations. And it's great how the Canadian $10 note includes the Invisible Pink Unicorn! :-)

Bertold, I'll take tangible noodly calories over an invisible sky daddy any day!

Comment by sk8eycat on January 28, 2015 at 7:06pm

Yeah, it does.  Harder to counterfeit, for one thing.  Larger bills do have a metal strip embedded in the paper...but they ARE kinda boring.

Comment by Patricia on January 28, 2015 at 6:58pm

We always said.....your cash needs some color!!!!

And then again, if we want to get back to deities--

I just use a Sharpie pen, scratch out ghod, and write in "Dogs"  or whatever I feel like writing that day.

FFRF always has an event at their annual convention....a drawing for pre-1957 bills...called "Clean Money."

I just use my debit card as much as possible.  I'd like to get one with a Grumpy Cat (or Ceiling Cat) photo on it, but I want to change banks....I hate Wells Fart, and now One West is trying to merge with another mortgage criminal outfit.  Do I have to belong to some group to get into a credit union?

How about a Social InSecurity Recipients Credit Union?

GC - I like yours even better!

It would be great if we could do origami to edit the slogan as suggested by the American Humanist Association:

'IN GOOD WE TRUST' on a $1 bill
